For Wednesday, October 19, 2011 Jeju City I rode the bus to Pyeoson in the southeast corner of Jeju island to visit the Jeju Folk Village Museum. I wasn’t sure if I had gotten off on the right stop, and after walking around for a half hour, I gave up and took a taxi straight there, which had been in the direction opposite that I had been walking. I spent a couple hours walking around the outdoor museum with a headset that spoke English descriptions.
For Tuesday, October 18, 2011 Jeju City I rode a bus from the bus station in downtown Seogwipo to Joseph Tree Guesthouse in the northeastern part of the island, I think technically part of Jeju City. I met Joseph, a Korean, and check in, then talked with him about my plans and he helped me figure out how to get there and back. I rode a bus to Seongsan Ilchulbong on the east coast and hiked the short distance to the top of the crater.
For Monday, October 17, 2011 Seogwipo I walked to Cheonjiyeon falls, near my hostel, about a ten minute walk. I learned you can just look for bunches of tour buses to locate the good tourist attractions. The falls were beautiful. The water looked nice and cool, a deep greenish-blue color. Signs said that a freshwater eel could only be found in those waters, but I couldn’t see any from the paths.
For Sunday, October 16, 2011 Seoul This day I had a flight to Jeju, a subtropical island off the southern coast of South Korea. I woke up at 9:30 AM, packed up my things, and was out the door by 10:30 AM, although I almost forgot my drying clothes and my toiletries. I just need a few more times to practice packing before it comes naturally. Keren (from Australia) was heading to Jeju as well, so we traveled to the airport together (we ended up on the same flight as well).
